Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Why no love for Brent from Rhino?

I am something of a Brent aficionado. I think it has something to do with the fact that the first GD music I heard was tapes that my Dad had from shows he went to in the early 80s. For me, that's the "standard" GD. His first show was in '72, but he briefly was into collecting tapes in the 80s.

Hope you're feeling better. I actually think I had a touch of swine flu last week. It sucked.

Let me ask you this- If you've heard any of the recent shows from the Dead, which would you suggest?

I am the wrong person to ask about The Dead. I haven't listened to a single show with the exception of the Penn State one from the fall. I figure there is so much Grateful Dead/Jerry Band that I need to experience still, perhaps I will get around to The Dead in a few years. Others seem to think the shows got better as the tour moved on and i have no reason to doubt them. I would probably check out a Branford one if I were to listen.

Presently I have been grooving at work to Jerry and Merl, mostly stuff that Tigerbolt posted here years ago and that Wineland sent me. In my new office they think I am some kind of jazz expert with all these crazy versions of All Blues and My Funny Valentine coming from my computer.
